Life is funny.

This weekend has definitely had its ups and downs.
I cut my bangs yesterday morning.  Not my best job, but not my worst either.  And they'll grow back in like two weeks, and then they'll be perfect. Optimism, it's a specialty of mine.
Also, I lost my wedding ring.  I'll be honest, I've misplaced my ring a few times.  But I always find it in thirty minutes at least.  This time, I have no idea where it is, even after frantic searching.  I'm afraid it may have gotten flushed down the toilet.  (TMI? Sorry.)  Hopefully it's somewhere around my in laws house.
This morning, I woke up and got on my computer.  Or tried to.  While I was checking my e-mail, it froze up, which is par for the course with my laptop, so I didn't think too much of it.  Then a little box popped up that said something like "Critical Error, Hard drive failure," or something like that.  Long story short, I frantically tried to save what I could before my computer completely crashed (which it did, within the hour).  I don't know how much I lost, since a lot of my files are backed up at home, but I don't know how long ago it was since I last backed them up.  I may have started to cry at the thought of losing some of my pictures, but I sucked it up like a big girl because we had church.

Obviously all these happenings are not ideal (read: kind of horrible/nightmarish/biblical-rending-my-clothes-upsetting), but honestly I haven't been too emotional or worried or distraught.  I have a long weekend, I'm spending it with family, I get to go to the beach tomorrow, I had a wonderful day at church today, I'm married to the love of my life, I'm healthy, and my life is full of so many blessings.  Life is full of bumps in the road like computers crashing and such, but sitting there and fretting about it and letting it tarnish everything else can't be good.  So I'm just gonna keep on trucking and enjoy my day tomorrow.

Happy Memorial Day!


P.S.  Here's a California King Snake we found in the yard today.  It was over four feet long!

Sorry about your poopie weekend - hope things pick up in the new week ahead and really hope you find your wedding ring! Is it insured? And even tho king snakes are not poisonous, I still don't like them...just looking at the picture makes me shiver!! Love you. ;O

yikes! What a weekend. You do have a tendency to misplace things (must be genetic) but as you so eloquently put- things are things but relationships and family are more important. That said, hope the ring turns up, the files are safe, and who knows what the birthday fairy may send your way- maybe early:)
Love to you!!!
